Former President Donald Trump is having trouble finding a good lawyer to represent him, per a new report from The Washington Post.
The Post spoke to several lawyers who commented under the condition of anonymity on Trump’s struggle to find seasoned counsel to defend him. “Everyone is saying no,” a Republican lawyer told The Post, weighing in on how lawyers are turning down the Trump camp’s cases.
Also speaking under anonymity, another lawyer spoke about the difficulties faced when representing Trump. They said that during his presidency, Trump would tweet about the Mueller probe against his legal team’s advice. Several other people also told The Post that Trump was an impossible client, and worried if they would be compensated for their work.
“In olden days, he would tell firms representing him was a benefit because they could advertise off it. Today it’s not the same,” said Michael Cohen, a former Trump lawyer who has since become a fierce critic of the former president.
“He’s also a very difficult client in that he’s always pushing the envelope, he rarely listens to sound legal advice, and he wants you to do things that are not appropriate, ethically or legally,” Cohen added.
Trump spokesman Taylor Budowich told The Post that the Trump legal team includes individuals like Jim Trusty and Evan Corcoran, who have “decades of prosecutorial experience and have litigated some of the most complex cases in American history.”
“President Trump is represented by some of the strongest attorneys in the country, and any suggestion otherwise is only driven by envy,” Budowich said.
